STEP in the Dominican Republic
Goal: $30/month

About this Mission Project

$1 a day – that’s all it takes to provide an education for a child in the Dominican Republic. 

Thanks to STEP – the Student Tuition Expense Program, Genesis is able to attend school every day. She’s growing intellectually and is a model for her friends at school and in her church.  Genesis is a brilliant girl who dreams of going to college.  

Families in the Dominican Republic who are poor, cannot afford the required school uniforms, school supplies or monthly school fees.  Without an education, the future is bleak for their children.

A pledge of $30/month helps provide each child with food, a school uniform, shoes, notebooks and pens, and pays for school fees.  STEP funds have made it possible for Genesis to stay in school.  

Mission Project Specifics

This project seeks to send 500 children to schools in San Cristobal, Bani and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.  $30 per month helps to provide food, a school uniform, shoes, books and school supplies for one student.  This project will be managed by missionary Madeline Flores-López.  It is anticipated that this project will improve the overall self esteem, education and future of hundreds of children in the Dominican Republic.  An education will help break the cycle of poverty giving each student the chance at better jobs in the future, and improving the overall health and vitality of their communities.

Pray with Madeline Flores and her partners in the Dominican Republic that a more accessible education will be possible for the poorest and those in need.
